From a city that never sleeps, I had one of the most comfortable sleeps of my life. Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts is one of the best chain hotels that I love. The distance from Jeddah airport was around 80kms and it took us one hour to reach the hotel. Located in the finest address in the holy city, Abraj Al Bait complex, there was access to the mall and other facilities within minutes from the room. And Masjid Al Haram is just foot steps away when you get down to the ground floor.
We booked our stay through Booking.com and were so happy to bag a terrific deal for a Haram view room for seven nights. We were a family of four and our room was really spacious and pretty. We checked in at around 8.30 pm and it was quick. The staff right from the doorstep to the reception was so humble and professional.
As I entered the room, walked towards the window, pulled the curtains and stared at this magnificent sight of Masjid Al Haram, clicked this pic! We were in the 27th floor and the view couldn’t be any better.
Mövenpick Makkah offers partial and total Haram view rooms and boasts of 1,028 elegantly appointed rooms and suites to enjoy the sight of the holy Masjid from the comfort of your room. There is 24/7 internet connection, room service and delicious breakfast with the package.
The hotel also has a spa which unfortunately I did not try as I got sick soon after reaching Makkah and all I wanted to was lay on the bed.
There are five restaurants in Mövenpick Al Hajar: Al Nasim, the main dining restaurant, Al Diwan, a beautiful tea lounge, Al Naim, a tea lounge and restaurant, and two buffet venues – Al Firdaous and Hajar. The dining venues offer creative and extensive spread of International and Swiss cuisines. The breakfast spread was extensive with a lot of varieties of food and a live egg cooking station. And as a sweet lover, their pastries hold a special place in my heart.
The rooms are equipped with speakers so that the Adhan and prayers can be heard inside the room. This was a true blessing! The room also had a mini kitchen bar, daily supply of tea, coffee and water and the bathroom was equipped with high quality toileteries. The only rant I had there was the windows were not maintained well. The glass was completely stained which hindered the pictures of this beautiful Haram view.
Talk about first class service where it is packed 24/7! I cannot wait to go back and experience the hospitality once again. I would highly recommend Mövenpick as your spiritual staycation in the Clock tower, Makkah. I was totally impressed. Thank you Mövenpick Makkah for making my stay so comfortable and memorable. Maa Shaa Allah😊😊
